     Traffic was fairly steady at the complete review for July, despite the World Cup. Interesting to see, however, how especially in the summer (with US colleges having their long break) the readership is even more interantional than usual: only just over 27 per cent of users were US based in July
     The Netflix series Sacred Games certainly revived interest in the book it was based on, while several new reviews also fared quite well.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 lists.
